When the Internet took off in the 1990s, many predicted it would end agents’ jobs. Ha! Not even close! In fact, the Internet has bolstered Agents in many ways. One way is through the arrival of virtual assistants (VAs) – those who work off-site. Many specialize in helping agents. There’s a good reason why VAs are flourishing: efficiency.

Productivity is vital in business, but productivity without efficiency is a sure path to a slow and painful death in real estate – or in any other business. VAs help you put a laser-like focus on what you do best – sell real estate.

I practice what I preach. My director of technology lives inBritish Columbia. He saves me a bundle every year. I don’t pay for his equipment, office space, insurance, vacation days, sick days, training or any other budget-draining items. I pay him only for what he does best – so I can do what I do best. Talk about synergy.

I like VAs because they go to the very heart of my business: developing and implementing systems that put real estate practices on autopilot so agents can enjoy more of their life.

For additional information and guidance on this topic we have posted an article on our website entitled “Virtual Assistants and the Power of E-Productivity” for you to review.
